Tomas von Brömssen,
Swedish comedy drama on TV that's a bit of an oxymoron. But for once they got everything right. A good script, good directing, and fantastic acting none of them have ever performed better! It's really heart-warming, but never gets too sentimental. Lots of funny little details. I'd say quality-wise, this is actually as good as Mike Bullen's masterpieces "Cold feet" and "Life begins".
I liked it a lot the first time around in 2001, and it has lost none of its charm now, 9 years later. Why we haven't seen anything else from the excellent writers is a mystery. These three episodes could very well have been expanded to another series or two.
